SAS SQL for the SAS Programmer/Analyst
What you'll learn
- Apply SQL syntax (like SELECT, WHERE, HAVING, GROUP BY, ORDER BY)
- Join tables (Inner join, left/right join, joining three tables, and full join)
- Managing tables (from how to create one, to how to alter columns, add rows)
- How to apply SQL to compare tables, find duplicate records, create conditions + more
- Internet connection
- A good knowledge of SAS data step
This is just the SAS SQL portion of my larger SAS Programming Complete Course. Ideal for students who are fairly comfortable with SAS Base but have not used SAS SQL all that much.
The goal of the course is to teach you SQL as it relates to the SAS programming language. In other words, you will learn SAS SQL. This means that you should have a good grasp of the SAS data step already! SQL is especially utilized for extracting/selecting data from database tables, and also manipulating that data.
If you're looking to gain a skill that is the PERFECT compliment to your knowledge with the SAS data step, this is the course. Employers often want employees to understand the SAS data step, and also how SQL is incorporated into the SAS Programming language.
Whether you are looking for a new job, looking to move up at your current company, or looking to get into a respected well-paying career after school..SAS SQL will get you that much closer.
The course has four main sections. The first section is Base Knowledge. You will learn about SQL syntax, including specifics on the Select and Where clause. You will also learn about Case Logic and Summary Functions. The second section is about Joining tables. I show you how to use the inner join, join three tables, left/right join, and full join. The third section is Working with Tables. I show you how to create a table, Alter columns (add, modify, delete) and how to Insert Rows in different ways. The final section is on Practical/Useful applications of SQL. For example, you'll learn how to Compare tables, find duplicate observations/get rid of them, how to sort the way you want to, and how to update a table under certain conditions.
Each section has video lessons, followed by a Quiz (that tests general knowledge), and then an Assignment (that requires you to apply what you've learned.)

Furthermore, whenever you see the phrases "SAS", "SAS Language" and "language of SAS" used in the course content this refers to the computer programming language. While the phrases "program", "SAS program", "SAS language program" used in my course is used to refer to programs written in the SAS language. These may also be referred to as "scripts", "SAS scripts" or "SAS language scripts".
Who this course is for:
- Students who have a base knowledge of SAS programming using the data step
- Students who are interested in developing their SQL skills
I have a passion for anything data, whether it is applying statistical methods to data more generally, or utilizing a data-driven approach in the Healthcare or Finance/Banking industries.
I studied Psychology for 6-years, including 2 years of Graduate school, where I was training to be a Child/School Psychologist. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experience a blend of course work and clinical work but also recognize some of the problems facing the mental health system and graduate school system. While I am very interested in finding a solution for the latter, this is a long-term goal.
I did ultimately decide to voluntarily leave the Grad program, it was via academics that I fell in love with statistics and statistical software like SPSS/SAS.
Furthermore, it was my Graduate school experience that not only solidified my interest in teaching, it's where I received a lot of positive feedback on my ability to break down complex topics.
I enjoy receiving messages from students who have passed exams, obtained interviews, or gained employment, from taking one of my courses.
Para meus alunos de língua portuguesa ...
Sou apaixonado por estatística, ciência de dados, programação orientada a objetos e psicologia / saúde mental. Eu desenvolvi um conhecimento em Programação e Estatística SAS através da minha escolaridade e auto-estudo. Também sou autodidata em programação orientada a objetos.
Eu sou um ex-aluno de graduação em psicologia educacional. Dois anos depois, decidi me retirar voluntariamente. Aprendi que o ambiente acadêmico tradicional e o ambiente clínico não eram o caminho adequado para promover mudanças em larga escala.
Ensinar é uma paixão há muito tempo. Criei meu primeiro curso de vídeo online em 2016 (um curso de Estatística). Foi um projeto de pura paixão. Como resultado de obter ótimos comentários, continuei! Atualmente, ensino os cursos de SAS, estatísticas e psicologia, mas também estou sempre aprendendo. Gosto de receber mensagens de alunos que passaram nos exames, obtiveram entrevistas ou obtiveram emprego ao fazer um de meus cursos.
